There is nothing like the challenges and camaraderie of the road to inspire a songwriter who thrives upon the emotional energy and exhilaration only travel can deliver. Some singers are devoted to the pursuit of perpetual motion, and Langhorne Slim releases his wild soul in ways that come out of the discipline of live performance.

Nathan Reich

"In addition to being a technically brilliant guitarist, Nathan's lyrics put you in a specific place and mindset — it usually has a something to do with hearbreak, late nights, and waking up the next day in some new city."

The Steam Engine
"This album, as much as any I've heard in a long time, is completely transformative. You know what he's singing, you know the subject matter. You've been there and somehow, he, as a songwriter, manages to capture that idea, that feeling in your stomach, of uncertainty or loss."

The FiveThreeSix
"His songs- stories of lovers, yearning, and learning are sweet and immediate like any true master of words. And he picked at the guitar so seamlessly it felt fake. His music achieves in the way Nick Drake's songs cut so soberly straight and in the way Leonard Cohen's tunes feel so drunkenly honest: they are brilliant in their simplicity."

The Groove
"The initial undeniable impression: this is some serious songwriting. While some tunes are sung over solo acoustic guitar, others feature Alexandra Spalding's graceful cello and vocal harmonies, and a handful have rolling tom drums, electric guitar murmurs, and textures you can't quite place your finger on...the lyricism follows suit: literary but straightforward, playful but honest. Themes of alcoholism, loneliness, and the daunting ambition of exploring the world, without and within, pump the majority of the blood through Arms Around a Ghost."

"Pastoral indie-folk with subdued vocals and glittering acoustic guitar."
